When you are dating, does age really matter? This topic was something a few girlfriends and I started discussing the other weekend. We each had a different outlook on this topic. One girl liked dating older men because they were established with a nice apartments, a strong job, ability to travel and take care of you. One girl didn’t care as much about age, it was all about how much fun they have together. I landed somewhere in the middle.
Back when I was 22 I went on a few dates with a guy that was 30. When it first started, I was really into him. He took me out to fancy restaurants, knew how to order wine, would drink Manhattan’s (and enjoy them)… basically he was a well established man. He had a great apartment in the Gold Cost and a good job. I really liked all of that about him and thought it would make it easy to like and date him.
I was way off. The more I got to know him, the more I realized we didn’t have that much in common. When we talked about our childhood, it was soooo different! I didn’t know half of the people or movies he was talking about. We were children of different generations. After about 4 dates, I realized that I wasn’t into him because of the age difference.
Since then I’ve focused on dating guys my age or a little order. For me, that was the right age bracket. My fiance is 6 months older then me.
So I’m wondering, what is the age difference between you and your boyfriend? How has it affected your relationship?
